As a service to the community, the Testing Center provides proctoring service to individuals in its service area. For those wishing to make use of this service, the following policies need to be observed:
- The test taker will be responsible for initiating all communication relating to the proctored exam(s).
- The test taker will be responsible for scheduling an appropriate time for testing.
- The test taker will start and complete the test during the Testing Center's regularly scheduled hours.
- If the test must be mailed out the same day as it is taken, it must be processed by 2 PM.
- The test taker will be responsible for any fees that are involved with test taking:
- The test taker will provide return postage for any test taken in the Testing Center.
- If any special mailing is required, the test taker will need to make arrangements prior to taking the exam.
- If a test requires a scantron, the student must provide this sheet.
- The Testing Center cannot take money, so test takers will need to provide the necessary mailing materials from the source (the Post Office, Federal Express, UPS). This includes registered and certified mail. Arrangements must be made prior to test taking.
- The test taker will need to show picture identification prior to test taking.
- Specific information relating to test questions and subject information will not be given over the phone.
- When essential, and required by the test taker's institution, copies of the testing material will be made.
- The Testing Center, when appropriate, but at its discretion, will send testing materials back to the test taker's institution.
